You CANNOT be serious...

Heard on the county radio tonight at the station: Haz Mat call for the 'smell of chemicals outside' someone's house. Chief gets on scene, sets up command. Engines are on scene, detect chemical. "Yeah, we can smell it, it's a slight smell of skunk."

Command cancels all incoming units, EMS units call in asking if they are canceled too.

Command: "No, keep EMS coming. The woman is on the balcony, complaining of respiratory distress from the smell."

Seriously? You smelled 'chemicals', and called 911. I can actually understand that, having been around a skunk when it initially let go, and it does smell like chemicals at first. But, the skunk is outside. YOU are outside. You are having respiratory distress. From a skunk? How's about you just GO INSIDE?????

Sometimes you just can't make this stuff up, you know?
